Spam

I’m running a bit of an experiment this week, checking to see how much Spam I get in the course of a week. I’m now using a superb program called POPfile to sort my spam from genuine mail.
The user just has to identify some early mail, differentiating between spam and genuine mail, and it does the job. I’d say that I’m about 90% there at the moment.
Anyhow after Day One I’ve had 40 pieces of spam. Of course, I haven’t recorded the number of genuine emails, which would usefully provide a % rubbish figure.
